3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 1/10/2014. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy deep gold color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of lemon zest, tangerine, orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, floral, grass, light pine, honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity of citrus/floral hops and light-moderate pale malt balance; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of of bright citrus/floral hops and light-moderate pale malt sweetness; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around good balance and complexity of bright citrus/floral hops and light-moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a fairly hazy gold with a decent head and aromas of pear and pineapple with a little honey. Flavor has a bit of honey sweetness with a pineapple hops presence (but sweet pineapple like a real one that you find ripe from a street vendor in Latin America or something) and a slight twang of tartness that I can’t quite figure out. Good beer with a little bit of an odd edge to it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy straw coloured with finger width head. Smells of straw with slight floral. Nice body, medium carbonation and dry finish. Floral, perfume, slightly piney.
A good tasting IPA, enjoyable but lacks the body to elevate this brew to amazing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fairly pale cloudy golden, contrasting white ringed head. Syruppy/soapy brightness, melon and watered down white grapefruit. Initial taste of tarty lemon, well tracked citrus and piney pineapple. Soft enough zip to the carbonation. Finish is punchy finger licked post tangerine peel bitterness, an odd follow up from a softly spoken lemon IPA. Hides the ABV very well, whilst a smooth bitter sipper.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle. Pours a cloudy bright orange. Huge nose. Lots of grapefruit and floral hemp. Super fresh smelling and inviting. Well balanced flavor of grapefruit, orange zest and light malts. Whispers of pine and passion fruit. Never too better. Aroma bigger than taste. Highly sessionable. Good carbonation.
